Air ambulance lands for thousandth time at Southampton General

Today the 1000th flight of the air ambulance landed at Southampton General Hospital.

It took place during a hospital open day where people were given a behind the scenes look at the workings of a major trauma centre.

The event, which is now in its sixth year, will see more than 100 events, activities and information stands.

People will be able to walk through a pair of giant inflatable lungs, watch a virtual autopsy and tour the operating theatres, as well as meet leading Cancer Research UK (CRUK) scientists, try on a pair of simulation specs to understand different eye conditions and meet the Pets as Therapy (PAT) dogs.
